The need for flexible working, career breaks and re-training programmes

We believe that individual circumstances dictate whether a woman return to paid employment and a mother's decision should always be respected.

We believe that employers should be encouraged to provide longer career breaks, re-training and part-time employment, so that more mothers can have a choice to return to paid employment when their children are older. Mothers would then be enabled to work around their children's need rather than their children being fitted in around their mother's employers needs.

We believe that these solutions would offer a more positive and enlightened solution for "working" mothers than the quest for more pre-school and after-school childcare.
